Repurposing Ocean Plastics Into Trophies

You place the highest polymer demands on our extruders, and that’s why 3devo embarks on every challenge – especially one that encourages sustainable practices within polymer development.

Now that we’re an official supplier of Extreme E, a fresh adventure is about to begin. Join our journey as we play a small role in a monumental off-road racing series that ventures into uncharted territory tackling climate change.

“This concept from 3devo was founded by young inventive engineers and I’m delighted Extreme E is able to implement this technology. The 3devo mission to assist businesses to be more sustainable is a shared vision of extreme e. It is incredibly satisfying to know that using ocean plastic for our trophies has a positive impact on the environment, and I can’t wait to see our inaugural race winners lift them in Saudi Arabia on the 4th of April.”

Sustainable Practices Accessible Onboard

The impact of waste plastic is devasting, with two-thirds of plastic produced ending up in the environment – including our oceans – which equates to about 6.3 billion tons. Extreme E hopes to highlight this issue by encouraging behavioral change. Extreme E, which aims to highlight the climate crisis issue, enlisted the support of 3devo. We have provided Extreme E with a full material recycling and processing solution, enabling the transformation of ocean plastic waste into filament for 3d printing applications, including the series’ winners’ trophies. Onboard St. Helena, there will be a maker space serving as a recycling facility. Here they will recycle consumer plastics and bring them back to life through customized 3d printing filament with 3devo’s extrusion solution – Showing the world that plastic waste threatening our environment can become useful when repurposed.
